If that tensioner is making noise, I would replace it. And be sure to do it per the manual to make sure you don't screw up cam timing and belt tension.

I just use olive oil. Wipe a little in. Heat til it starts smoking lightly, then let cool. Might do it twice. Has worked well for 30yrs.

Just had an outboard on the dock doing this. Plugs were new as of a month ago. Decided to try a fresh set of plugs since it is cheap to do. New plugs fixed it.

Yep, I doubt you can torque head bolts with an inch pound wrench. Doubt it goes high enough. 65ft lb is 780in lb. In lb wrenches are for little things.

Yea, I'd try it in the water. Just keep an eye on it. Might be air hiding in a pocket that will purge out when up at power.

Outdrives don't like the high torque created by diesels. The Volvo units used like a 3.6liter turbo six, about 200hp. A 400hp Cat is like 7liter. Much more grunt to break things in the drive.

I suspect that skiff was followed back to what ever port. But that detail is probably kept out of the public discussion.
